That’s me at the beginning saying we can grow our own food. Lots of great tips from others, like shopping at tailgate markets and talking with local farmers.

march against monsanto

I spoke at the March Against Monsanto 2013 event in Asheville, NC about growing our own food and creating pollinator-friendly habitats. AP reports: Two million people marched in hundreds of rallies across the U.S. and in over 50 other countries. I was honored to share the bus with “kid farmer” Birke Baehr, Anne Peterman from the Global Justice Ecology Project, local farmer Frances Tacy of Franny’s Farm, local caterer Rebecca Friedman of Farmer’s Daughter Catering, and Tom Llewellyn of R.E.A.L. Cooperative. I was there to speak for the bees.
